A gem in kyoto

If you like a more "modern" style hotel, then this is the place. The lobby area was comfortable and welcoming. The room was nice and roomy considering we were in Japan (rooms are a bit tighter compared to the US). Great value for the dollar and it was located near a main bus stop and road way. Navigating from our hotel to the temples and sights was a breeze

Great Find, Great location

Smack in the middle of where we wanted to be. Minutes by bus to the Kiyomizu Dera Temple, moments away from a train to take us to the Arashiyama Bamboo Forrest. Beautiful inside and out. Great rates and a greater location for us.

Good Hotel Find in Kyoto

Large clean and very comfortable rooms. Friendly counter staff. Location a bit off beaten path so extra walking but made up for by comfort and value of this relatively new Kyoto hotel. Would definitely recommend.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Use taxis. Just a bit more expensive than subway when traveling with 2 or more people for short distances.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The best food is off the main drag...have no fear of the alleyways...be prepared to sit on the floor, sans shoes of course...multiple courses of just about anything you could ever want to eat. Breakfast...small Pastry/Coffee shops are open at 7 am...yummy!
